    I realize that you have quite a snarky opinion of anything I say, but I obviously wasnít aware of the claim that a debris field was found at the time I made my post above. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, it hasnít at this point really been disproven, and it would appear that willyworm agrees that this whole story smells.

    But to answer your question, no, I donít believe in little ninjas or fairies. I do believe that itís been proven time and time again that what we are told by our government is rarely close to the truth. And I doubt weíll ever hear the real story of why a pilot ejected from a high-tech plane that supposedly stayed in the air for some time, and his fellow pilot wasnít instructed to track it since apparently the USAF canít.

    The pilots are trained to point the bird in a safe location away from people/structure before punching out. If they say it's near the S-C lakes, it's nearby. If it were on land this is a whole didn't convo and the plane would have been found.

    Either way, this is a complete shit show and I trust very little of what I read on it.

    Oh it stinks alright. I drove thru some of those storms and they were nasty. With it being that way the plane never should have launched to begin with. I know people shake their heads wondering why a flight gets canceled due to "weather" but this is why. One thing goes wrong, aircraft gets struck by lightning (which is completely possible) or one of a plethora of other trappings, and the jet goes down. That's why they avoid flying, especially when it's not mission critical, when the weather gets fowl like it was on Sunday.

    I still think this whole incident is somehow tied to ECU1984's new drone...

Other countries still fly F-5s though, as they're cheap and a highly maneuverable supersonic aircraft. We can convert the T-38s easily but why when we have a buncha studs in the stable like F-15EX, 16s, 35s and 22s.






    Calm down. It's just Charleston AFB's Safety Office and yes, they don't leave the base much... at least not in that truck they don't. Most likely with emergency management riding shotgun.

    Either way, I was told the ELT transponder wasn't working. Think "black box" here although it's not actually black but anyway. If crashed over land the ELT is supposed to activate upon impact or can be manually triggered by the pilot. It emits a tone on the guard freq's and assists in location of the wreckage by emergency crews and the planes they fly. The aircraft also has a Underwater Acoustical Beacon that emits a sonar tone if it crashes in water but only specific ships/boats are outfitted with the stuff to hear said tone. Good luck getting one of 'em on Marion or Moultrie. Perhaps Coast Guard has a smaller one outfitted with the ability to detect/locate the UAB tone. Who knows?

    SilentWeapon, the reason why Apaches aren't on the job are they're attack helicopters and are not used for search and rescue. Now if Chinamen were trying to get to the crash site before us then the Apache would be of use. USAF uses the HH-60 for the SAR mission and USCG has a couple others they use.

    The pilots are trained to point the bird in a safe location away from people/structure before punching out. If they say it's near the S-C lakes, it's nearby. If it were on land this is a whole different convo and the plane would have likely been found already. Water landings get complicated.

    Either way, this is a complete shit show and I trust very little of what I read on it.

    Thank you for your insight. Cmon Dude, chinamen is no longer the preferred nomenclature.

    Appreciate your insight and service. While the USAF does not use the F-5, the Navy and Marines still have 3 units. In fairness, the T-38 and the F-5 are easily confused by an excitable civilian like myself who was wholly focused on the F-35's.

    This whole things has a undertone of fuckery. No pictures of the pilot, ejection seat, or parachute in this Instagram world? Well alright. MG

    Damn thing landed about a mile from my farm in Indiantown. Driving home from work yesterday, came around the curve to blue lights and LEO everywhere. Sat and chatted with local DNR for a minute and watched helicopters and the search party. Was a pretty wild scene. Wasn't long after I got home they reported it had been found.

    little did you know it was our uber-smart government's rapid response team that was PRETENDING to cover up the crash when, in actuality, the plane is sitting in ukraine or china or something.

    don't you paranoia worth a shit?

    I figured the best option for the wingman is to keep eyes on the parachute, not the plane.

    If you dont think there are chinese operatives stomping through those woods, you are sadly mistaken.

    They were probably there before our guys.

    We do some work at a defense plant and Chinese "tourists" were caught on a tour wearing double sided tape on the bottom of their shoes. They were trying to pick up ANYTHING in the dust on the floor to analyze for a competitive advantage. They will take a piece of scrap metal and reverse engineer it in a heartbeat. A wiring harness could be invaluable to them at some point.

    There are Chinese spies around EVERY military and defense installation in this country and others. And they are kicking our asses.

    but 2th, fighter jets never crash,
    How can that be possible, when they are mechanical, built and flown by humans
    a Jet crashing is totally unheard of, "it definitely stinks"
    Oh wait, never mind, I think this is the third or 4th military jet to crash this month
    Carry on

    How often does this crap happen and we're not aware of it?

    So now the gubmint doesn't do anything we're not aware of? Including screwing stuff up? Okay.

    If it ain\'t accurate at long distance, then the fact that it is flat shooting is meaningless.
